Hulu released on Tuesday the official trailer for their upcoming Wu-Tang Clan biopic, “Wu-Tang: An American Saga.”
Guided by the musical vision of a young RZA, who partnered with “Watchmen” and “Superfly” screenwriter Alex Tse to write and produce the series inspired by the rapper’s books, “The Wu-Tang Manual” and “Tao Of Wu.”
The trailer opens with RZA, played by Ashton Sanders, working the turntables. “I’m just trying to make music,” he says at one point in the trailer.
Set in early ’90s New York the show tracks the Wu Tang Clan’s formation, a vision of Bobby Diggs, who strives to unite a dozen young, black men that are torn between music and crime but eventually rise to become the unlikeliest of American success stories.
Hulu will release the first three episodes of the drama series on Wednesday, September 4, with the remaining seven episodes streaming weekly. (watch trailer below)
